This Is What It's Like To Watch "Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban" For The First Time

Cuarón is a genius. This was epic.

Posted on

This week, I watched and live-tweeted everyone's favourite film of the series. Here's what I thought.

A month ago I'd never seen a Harry Potter film, now I'm watching Prisoner of Azkaban for the first time. Let's do this! #finallywatchingHP

Then he blows her up like Violet Beauregarde, only less purple.

Warner Bros.

Bloating is a real issue. If you have any of these symptoms, please see a doctor. Or at least stop eating bread.

The Minister of Magic is at The Leaky Cauldron. Harry thinks he's going to be punished.

Warner Bros.

"Why, if I punished every wizard who murdered someone, Azkaban would be full. To say good job on a murder well done, I've bought all your school books for you."

The film looks stunning, by the way.

Loving the look of this one. Cuarón is a genius. #finallywatchingHP

Buckbeak kicks Draco Hair Gel, and everyone lulz. Everyone except Hermione.

Warner Bros.

"I hate air keyboard as much as the next Hippogriff, but we should totes take him to the hospital."

The students are all off to the nearby village of Hogsmeade, but not Harry, for reasons McGonagall explains in her delightful Scottish accent.

@wordsbydan he's basically called "Wolfie Wolferson"

Lupin tells Harry the happy thoughts he needs to conjure the Patronus Charm aren't happy enough, and he needs to think of something else.
